It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Keeping the rooms in your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to fix the problem.
If your room is too warm, what can you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and essentially reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some suggestions.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace move hot air through your home to heat it, it draws out cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, your furnace can’t do its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.
Regular maintenance is key
We can’t emphasize how important regular maintenance is to the proper and efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. Our experts can help keep your system running well by completing simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential repairs before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what maintenance or repairs need to be done, we’ll keep your home comfy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic to heat. Making sure your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help. When the fan is switched to “On,” your furnace will keep air circulating from room to room and create a more even temperature.
